07:40 AM ET 02.14 | On the surface, losing to Wisconsin in Madison is no great shame, and might not damage Minnesota's tournament hopes. But all of a sudden, we're looking at a team that could very well end up below .500 in conference play. The Gophers do have a couple of good wins -- Wisconsin, Ohio State, at Richmond -- and their strength of schedule is top five nationally, so they are in pretty good shape. But here's the catch: three of their six games remaining are against some of the best teams in the league. They're at Ohio State, they've got Iowa at home and they visit Michigan. With the Florida State and Indiana wins looking less impressive by the day, the Gophers are in a spot where they could end up needing to finish the regular season 4-2 to feel good about their standing heading into the Big Ten tournament.

Is it just my blurry vision, or does #55 look like he's relieving himself on an opposing player?

We'll considering 4-2 down the stretch puts them at 9-9 in the b10 yeah no sh. It that would make them feel good since there's almost no way they'd miss at that point w their SOS and rpi

Now that you mention it ... yea. Kind of reminds me of that UCLA football pic they used to run with the coach bent over on the sideline with his hands on his knees looking out on to the field and Ole # 88 was "standing" right behind him. Coach had a look on his face.

I am forgetting the coach was it a picture of Rick Neuheisal?
